NeNe Leakes hasn’t been re-married for more than a month and already the drama surrounding the ceremony has begun. In response to the celebrity wedding planner suing her for not paying certain wedding bills, the newly Mrs. Leakes, besides saying she won’t be paying a dime, says the woman is simply looking for a little celebrity.

According to TMZ, Tiffany Cook, the planner, filed a lawsuit in Georgia, claiming she put together NeNe’s June wedding but was never paid by RHOA star for her services. For her troubles, Cook is suing for $2.5 million. When reporters caught up with NeNe in Beverly Hills, they asked about the suit to which she replied that she never hired Cook, adding: “I don’t owe her a f****** dime.”

Since the wedding, of course, will make to reality TV, fans have wonder is this tiff will hit the airwaves as well. We’ll keep you posted!

Kenya Moore may come off as a crazy, self-obsessed former beauty queen, but recently showed she does have a heart. During a recent interview with, the Real Housewives of Atlanta star talked about why did not attend NeNe Leakes recent wedding.

NeNe re-married her ex-husband Gregg Leakes last month. The two had a lavish Atlanta ceremony attended by 400 guests including RHOA co-stars Cythia Bailey, Kandi Burruss, Jennifer Williams, Kim Zolciak, and Porsha Stewart. While an invitation was extended to Kenya, she didn’t attend, but had a good reason for not being there.

“I didn’t go to NeNe’s wedding,” Moore confessed, “I was in Africa at the time.” Knowing her Real Housewives sistren, she also noted: “I don’t think she’s too happy about that.”

Not to worry, though. Kenya admitted to doing what she barely (if ever) does on the show: say sorry. “I have apologized to her. We actually were on the same flight to L.A. last week.”

Aaaah, that’s extremely nice of Kenya. But don’t think you’ve heard the last of this. This is reality TV… and that genre is made for drama. Expect this little mishap to make its way onto the small screen next season. NeNe will make sure of this!

Tamar Braxton and NeNe Leakes are making headlines again — for making monetary gains and causing controversy. It turns out Tamar is not just a new mom, she also has impressive mansion-flipping skills. Braxton sold her luxurious Hidden Hills, California home just two years after she and her husband Vincent Herbert bought it back in 2011. The new parents purchased the 11,700 square foot abode for 3.4 million, but recently sold it for 6.9 million. Which means Toni Braxton’s little sister and hubby netted a 3.5 million profit. Cha-ching!

Leave it to NeNe Leakes to raise the bar of drama even on her wedding day. The Real Housewives of Atlanta star will become the blushing bride part deux when she remarries her husband Gregg Leakes at the Intercontinental Hotel in Atlanta on Saturday. The ceremony and reception will also be filmed for an upcoming reality special called, I Dreamed of NeNe: The Wedding. So not only is the star-studded guest list is required to wear “Old Hollywood glam attire” consisting of gowns for the ladies or tuxes and suits for gents, they will also have to sign off on a confidentiality agreement.

The document includes such high maintenance stipulations which include that  guests cannot be under the influence of drugs or medication, cannot have any pre-existing health conditions and cannot run for public office within the next calendar year.  Seems NeNe is repping team Next Level Bridezilla. Go on, girl!

Brandi Glanville on NeNe Leakes: “She Takes Responsibility for Everyone’s Success”

A mini-war of words has broken out among the Real Housewives, specifically between Real Housewives of Atlanta’s NeNe Leakes and Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star Brandi Glanville.

It all began when NeNe called Brandi a “train wreck” and mocked her because she said Brandi, “thinks she’s a gangsta” when Leakes appeared on Andy Cohen’s live gabfest, Watch What Happens Live. But it didn’t end there. Glanville picked up the verbal baton and ran with it all the way to the press.

“It doesn’t affect me. She doesn’t even know me…” Glanville told “…Get to know me first. Then she can say what she wants about me…” She continued, “…And I am gangsta! Why can’t I be gangsta? Because I’m white skinny and tall?!”

Leakes also reportedly said about Glanville, “ She’s just off the chain, she’s off the hook [with] a lot of things that she has to say, just so talkative.”

Glanville admits to being tipsy the last time she saw NeNe at the Bravo Upfonts in April at 2am. Brandi says there was lots of trash talking but they both were having a good time.  She told, “I was totally tipsy… we were all just having fun,” Glanville added. “So I said I was gangsta. It’s NeNe… I could care less. I don’t know her.”

But Brandi confessed that watching NeNe ream her on TV has since given her pause on her true feelings about the Housewives franchise highest paying star. “As I was watching the show last night I felt like she was drinking her own Kool-Aid a little too much,” says Glanville about NeNe, whom she thinks could use an ego check. “I do think she was trying to take responsibility for everyone’s success a bit…everyone on the show brings something different and they’re all important roles.”

NeNe Leakes Reunites With Ex-Hubby Gregg, Admits to Simon Cowell Crush

If audiences have learned anything from watching reality star turned sitcom actress NeNe Leakes, is that she always tells it like it is.  After several years and seasons of having audiences guess are they together or aren’t they, the Real Housewives of Atlanta star admitted to the CBS gabfest The Talk that she and divorced husband Gregg are reconciling.

“I am not sure if Gregg was ready to see me as his wife out in the forefront, making my own money, doing my own thing,” Leakes told the ladies of The Talk. “That was very difficult for him and I felt like Gregg wasn’t doing all the things that he should be doing as a husband and I decided to divorce Gregg…Yes, we are legally divorced and we were separated for about a year-and-a-half, and now we are back together.”

But just as quick as she admitted she’s reconnected with her husband, it hasn’t stopped The New Normal star from publically admitting her all time biggest celeb crush at a recent event.

Simon Cowell, I like him. I do,” Leakes told “I want him to come around me with a white T-shirt on and I want him to smoke a cigarette.”

Good ‘ole NeNe, I wonder what hubby Gregg thinks about that tidbit of info she shared with the world.

NeNe Leakes and Kim Zolciak Feud on Twitter

This week the never-ending battle between NeNe Leakes and Kim Zolciak moved from Real Housewives of Atlanta to Twitter, this after it was revealed that Kim was leaving the reality series half way through the fifth season.

Radaronline reported that Kim decided to exit the show, saying: “I was eight months pregnant and there was so much drama, I just had to walk.”

But NeNe, wanting to set the record straight on Kim’s departure, hit Twitter exclaiming: “It’s so funny how this chick wants people 2 think she quit the show! The producers no longer wanted 2 work wit [sic] u! Good bye wit the lies.”

And of course Kim would have the last say, responding: “I definitely was NOT fired from RHOA. I can guarantee u that!!! You are so mad u can’t stand it & hold your anger in, u are suppose to have all this stuff going on but ur staying tuned into me.”

“My spinoff last year was a 1 time thing,” Kim concluded, “so this spinoff is brand new! Bye hater! Makes no sense to get fired and get a promotion!”

While fans of the show will be sad to see Kim leave RHOA, they’ll be hoping the tension brewing between Kenya Moore and Cynthia Bailey will fill the viewer’s thirst for conflict.

Kim Zolciak Still “Doesn’t Feel Safe” Around Nene Leakes

Published by Natasha Fierce on Friday, November 16, 2012 at 10:00 am.

The truce that was called between Real Housewives of Atlanta frenemies Kim Zolciak and Nene Leakes during the season four reunion special seems to be shattered, just three episodes into season five.

Kim “Tardy for the Party” Zolciak blogged about her tense confrontation with her former BFF when she attended Leakes’ party. The blonde diva claims she didn’t feel “comfortable, safe or happy” about attending Nene’s party in the first place, but went anyway to give Nene the “benefit of the doubt.”

Well, all doubt has been erased as to whether these two could ever repair their once-strong friendship. “I’ve said this a million times and I stand by it: NeNe is unpredictable!” Kim wrote on her official Bravo blog. “I thought it was very odd and out of the blue she would want me at her event. For all I know, I could have blinked at her the wrong way and ended up in the pool.”

Speaking of pools, Nene called racism on Kim after the mother-of-four cracked a joke that NeNe didn’t need an outdoor pool because, as a Black woman, she can’t tan.  ”Her remarks were racist … no ifs and or buts about it … I don’t like people who talk like that,” NeNe responded.

Those who have been holding out hope that “Kimene” would come back strong might just have to settle for watching reruns from season one. But to ease the pain, we suggest a simple drinking game to accompany your Real Housewives of Atlanta marathon: take a swig every time someone says “I’m done.”

New Obsession: TLC’s Upcoming “Preacher Wives”

Praise the genius that came up with this idea: TLC announced that it has partnered with True Entertainment–the production company behind The Real Housewives of Atlanta and Sister Wives–for a new series called Preacher Wives.

According to the Hollywood Reporter, the series will not only follow strong-willed Atlanta women as they play out their role as preacher’s wives in the congregation, but also give a view of their home lives and how they balance both roles.

Can I get a hallelujah? Finally, a show worthy of filling the void left in our lives by the season end of RHOA. If PW comes close to the train wreck circus True Entertainment pulled off with it’s other hit shows, I’ll be clearing my prime time schedule in advance.

No premiere date has been set for the series, but us believers will be waiting for it like the Second Coming. If the network airs the show on Sunday mornings, can it count as going to church?

Basketball Wives’ Tami Roman Sued Over Hair Extensions

Tami Roman is facing her third lawsuit this year…and this one’s gonna be a hair puller. After dealing with claims of assault by her former co-star Meeka Claxton and non-payment by a former manager, Tami now has to deal with Constance Corleone, owner of Bella Dream Hair, who has this to say about the reality TV star: b*tch stole my weave!

According to TMZ, in the suit Corleone says Roman asked her for samples of her hair extensions, and shortly after announced plans to launch her own line of fake locks. In case that wasn’t enough to spur on a cat fight, Tami also allegedly used Corleone’s product in her own advertising campaign for her company Curls by Roman.

Tami spoke out about the suit by tweeting, “Fraudulent people trying to take credit NOT.  People trying to take credit for this hair.  WTF they crazy.”

Roman and Corleone are keeping their fight limited to the court room and Twitter (for now), but seriously…if there were ever a time for someone to offer Nene Leakes her own Judge Judy-type show, now would be it. “Whatsa matter? Wig squeezin’ your brain too tight?”

Real Housewives of Atlanta’s Peter Thomas Airs Out NeNe, Sheree and Apollo Again!

Published by Dior Noir on Wednesday, November 23, 2011 at 9:30 am.

Cynthia Bailey’s storyline on Real Housewives of Atlanta might be a bit of a snooze compared to her other cast mates,  but her husband Peter Thomas stirred up enough drama for the both of them after running his mouth about the gang in Uptown magazine and he’s back for round two in a follow up interview!

Peter summed up his feelings about the cast in his first interview with Uptown and said, “I can’t stand Phaedra’s ass. I think Kim is crazy as f–k. Nene has a big-ass mouth, okay? And Sheree’s not cute! She thinks she’s cute, but she’s not cute. The only one I like is Kandi, and she’s too soft. That’s why she got played with Kim.” Well damn! The comments didn’t fly with Sheree Whitfield who confronted Peter on the show about his choice words and Phaedra Phark’s husband Apollo also got buck in the name of standing up for his lady, but that didn’t stop Peter from having everyone’s name in his mouth after. Peep the second interview where he elaborates on his first jabs.

On clashing with Apollo:

What people see is what it is. I don’t really know Apollo. Apollo felt like he was defending his wife [regarding] the Uptown  article that I did…the article wasn’t about them. The article was about how I felt about what my wife said and what people were saying about, you know, Uptown Restaurant and Lounge and that she gave me money to do it and I wanted to set the record straight by saying yes she made a contribution but I didn’t take her wallet to do it.

The real problem with Sheree:

She talks about everybody fu–ed up all the time, especially my wife. She said my wife is spineless. She said my wife has no backbone. She said my wife follows around NeNe like some little puppy. She says a lot of really fu–ed up things and my wife is too much of a classy chick to even go in on that so, when they ask me what I think, because me and my wife is one, I’m gone say how I feel. She thinks she’s cute but I don’t think she’s cute. If she thinks she’s cute, then that’s on her. It’s like when I watched [the show Sunday] night and she said ‘well, I know I’m cute’ and my answer was ‘really.’ It didn’t change how I feel. But all of that was at the top of the year. I just saw Sheree recently after the Soul Train Awards. She came through to bar One and maybe she forgave me or I forgave her. We don’t know. Let’s see what happens next.

About NeNe and her mouth:

When I say NeNe is loud, it’s because NeNe got a big ass mouth but I love her. I love her to death. I love her. She’s cool as hell. She’s the realest as far as I’m concerned.

About Kim and her mouth:

When I say Kim is crazy as hell, it’s because her mouth is so reckless. All kinds of sh-t come out of her mouth. I don’t think they have ever shot Kim without beeping, without beep beep beep beep beep beep beep beep, because she talks crazy. That’s how she talks.

And there you have it!

Now everybody gets their opinions and I can’t say that Peter’s coming out of nowhere with his, but for someone who has a problem with everyone else running their mouth (and with another husband standing up for his wife as a result), he sure is playing the pot calling the kettle black by doing the same! It’s almost laughable that he’s even meddling in their mayhem at all but I guess one of those guys had to fill the void Dwight left…

Do you think Peter was out of pocket?
